In 1893, Mrs. Grover Cleveland, Frances Folsom Cleveland, became the first presidential wife to give birth at the White House (girl, Esther). The first child born in the White House, though, was the granddaughter of Thomas Jefferson in 1806: Jefferson's daughter, Patsy (Mrs. Thomas Mann Randolph, Jr.) gave birth to a son named for James Madison.

Moss is hard to digest and has little nutritional value, but strangely enough, reindeer fill
up on it because it contains a special chemical that helps keep their body fluids warm.
The chemical keeps them from freezing much the same way that anti-freeze keeps a car
from freezing up in winter.
